Seeing the World Through Google's Eyes – The Ringer

#artificialintelligence 

Amid a handful of announcements at the I/O developers' conference Wednesday, Google introduced a feature that allows you to Shazam the world. Point it at a concert poster, and your screen will pull up tickets. Point it at a flower, and it will school you on the species. The feature was a crowd favorite. At no other point in the company's two-hour keynote did the audience cheer so loudly than when engineering VP Scott Huffman aimed the camera at a router's network information and automatically logged onto the Wi-Fi.
